Love the header, beautiful! And love the simple white background is clean and elegant and will be perfect for all your colorful art.

Ah ha... a new banner... and an awesome list of accomplishments. You are a truly to be admired to have accomplished so much. I think the joy that stands out in all your work and the whimsy you bring to each piece is just another part of what makes you so special.
So add that as number 101. You are a gifted artist.

Hi Alicia! I'd tell you the story but it's a bit gruesome. I basically kept someone from possibly bleeding to death.

And I definitely recommend kissing in the rain - VERY romantic!! ;-) :-) In my case it was a sort of snowy/rainy day.

Go for it Jess, it's VERY fun!

Thanks for the compliment on the banner, Ginger and for the kind words *blush*! I always felt like I was the non-adventurous, bookish type so this list makes me feel a little less so - but I have to admit most of my traveling was with my family when I was in grade school. We lived in Belgium for two years. I wish I remembered more of it - I do remember getting in trouble for lying down in the middle of the sistine chapel so I could look at the ceiling properly. The guards were nonplussed lol! I was about 6 or 7.
